The Duck Pond
The Duck Pond off MacClintock Road, officially known as Warfield Ponds Park, is one of our favorite places to go. There is a playground, tennis courts, covered pavillion, volleyball court, and a walking path that goes around, what else?, a duck pond. We love to go and feed the ducks, fish and turtles that live in the pond. On warm, sunny days you can see turtles basking on reeds at the far end of the pond. After dinner on summer nights, we like to ride bikes around the pond (we always stop and walk our bikes across the far end of the pond, though. When you go, you'll see why! There's a boardwalk and the sides are made of cables.) The kids love to dig in the sand volleyball court, which kind of grosses me out, because, really, who knows what kind of animals use it for a bathroom? The only drawback to this park is that there are no swings. But, all in all, this is a great park to go to for some nature spotting and exercise!
